14. GPS

A GPS device is not required, but it is very desirable. If it is fog or poor visibility, the race director can make a decision to allow start only for riders with GPS device. The route will be marked but not as detailed as in the previous years. The organizer does not take responsibility if someone removed the markers from the track. Even in these cases, competitors who did not have a GPS device and leave the track will be penalized. Competitors bring their own GPS device and submit it to the organizer on the registration. The organizer loads the route and the device gives the competitor before the start of a race day. After the end of the day, the competitor is obliged to hand over the device to the organizer at the finish of that day.

NOTES

– The organizer does not take responsibility for malfunction, breakage or losing the device during the race
– All track logs will be deleted from your device, so back it up before you come to the race
– The competitor needs to have basic knowledge of using the device
– Route recording must be activated on the unit. If the competitor after the race day does not have recorded track, he/she will be penalized
– Each competitor needs to have spare batteries for own GPS on every competition day
– If the GPS device has a built-in battery that can not be changed, the competitor is obliged to hand over the charger for own GPS device
– It is recommended that the zoom on the GPS device is kept at 80m
– The competitor is obliged to ensure a holder on a bike for his own GPS


15. GPS TRACKER

The Organizer has provided a tracker device for all riders, and through those trackers, the organizer will be able to track your movement during the race. In case the rider losses or switch-off tracker, he will be disqualified. Please note, tracker is a device that you can carry in your backpack and it is not the same as a GPS device in which you can put the track of the race.


16. STANDINGS AND TIME PENALTIES

As a general rule, the XROSS CHALLENGE competition is based on the rule the shortest time wins.

On the first day of the race, competitors are riding Prologue – enduro track of estimated length 50km. Riders start the Prologue based on their starting number/starting position. After the end of the Prologue, the ranking is based on the time rider needed to finish the Prologue. All riders in PRO and EXPERT Class who didn’t finish amongst 16 first riders, will get the time penalty of 7 minutes which will be added to their total time achieved in Day 2 and Day 3.

Riders from PRO and EXPERT Class who finished amongst first 16 riders will ride Super Enduro test. Based on the time they score on the Super Enduro test, they will rank for the starting position – from 1. to 16. Each position also carries a certain time penalization, which is added to the total time after Day 2 and Day 3.

The first three riders on the Super Enduro test will choose the starting position for Day 2 (they can choose one of the first three places). The rider with the best time will have the opportunity to choose first.

Place         Time penalty

1                 0min

2                 1min

3                 2min

4                 3min

5                 3min 30sec

6                 4min

7                 4min 30sec

8                 4min 45sec

9                 5min

10               5min 15sec

11               5min 30sec

12               5min 45sec

13               6min

14               6min 15sec

15               6min 30sec

16               6min 45sec

Time is calculated according to the formula:

Penalty on the Prologue + Time Day 2 + Time Day 3 + Time penalties (if any) = Final (Total) Time.

If the competitor doesn’t finish any of Day 1, Day 2 or Day 3, he will be penalized for that day.

The competitor is allowed not to finish one of the first two days of the competition (Day 1 OR Day 2) but will be penalized for that day.

The competitor did not finish race day if he did not certify all CPs that day or did not come to finish in the given time for that day.

The competitor has not finished the day if he has certified all CPs on that day, but he rode significant different from the given GPS route (decision of the director of the race).

If the competitor does not finish the first two days, he is automatically disqualified, but he can ride Day 3 without a placement.

The competitor must finish Day 3 so he can count for the placement. If he does not finish Day 3 he is without placement. For the Day rider didn’t finish the race he will get time penalty regarding the number of CP he didn’t finish (decision of the director of the race).

So the competitor finished the race in the following examples :

Finished race = Day 1 (finished) + Day 2 (finished) + Day 3 (finished)
Finished race = Day 1 (NOT finished and have penalties) + Day 2 (finished) + Day 3 (finished)
Finished race = Day 1 (finished) + Day 2 (NOT finished and have penalties) + Day 3 (finished)

At the end we will have an overall winner for each class (PRO, EXPERT, HOBBY).

In case of events that are outside of the control of the Organizer (eg. adverse weather conditions, race track deterioration etc) the standings will be established taking into account the time of the last checkpoint which was passed by roughly 30% of the total number of competitors.

In case of extreme weather conditions (strong winds, lightning storms, fog, snow or heavy rain) the Organizer reserves the right to change the race schedule and/or shorten the track on safety grounds. In very extreme cases, race days can get rescheduled or even canceled.

A checkpoint is considered missing in the following situations:

• a competitor does not arrive at the checkpoint;
• a competitor arrives at the checkpoint from another direction than the normal direction of the race track or from the race track of another category;
• a competitor leaves the checkpoint in another direction than the race track or on the race track of another category;
• not stopping at checkpoints or stopping outside of the checkpoint established corridor;
• overtaking at the checkpoint or inside the checkpoint established corridor;
• a competitor staying inside the checkpoint established corridor after his passing was noted and confirmed for that particular checkpoint.

Missing a checkpoint is sanctioned by a time penalty of 60-240 minutes (will be announced at the morning briefing before the start).

Additional time penalties may be imposed for riders missing certain track sections – these penalties will be communicated at the briefing.

Day 1- Prologue, Day 2 and Day 3 of racing will have a maximum time for completion which will be announced by the Organizer at the briefing. Competitors who are still on the race track after the maximum allowed time is up will advance to the next checkpoint where they will follow the instructions given by the Organizer.
